Three Simple Ingredients, a Whole Lot of Wellness.
January: the month of cleanses. No doubt we’re all feeling the repercussions of that second helping of apple pie, and all those irresistible pumpkin loaves your favorite cafe was baking up. If you’re interested in trying a more health-focused routine in the morning—we have an easy, painless way to switch your ESPRO press to “wellness mode.”
In addition to coffee, each one of presses doubles as a tea brewer with the help of our tea filter. We polled the ESPRO team for their favorite tea concoctions, and this simple wellness-focused recipe was the winner. Serve it hot or cold.

Sipping Your Way to Wellness

If you want to know more about the power of these ingredients—here are some health benefits of ginger and why we should all be getting friendly with cinnamon this year.
